Stars

how easy it is to let the stars slip out of my hands

watch them turn

waiting for my nod of permission

then spin away

go fly my stars

you have been beholden to me for far too long

I grant you the freedom to shine on any soul

be free

and in your freedom

when the sky is dark

and you hear my heart's song

come and shine a bit more on me

just for the memory of those precious

lifetimes

of

my loved one and I
